Craft Stamper Take It Make It March Challenge

There is still time to join the Craft Stamper - March Challenge
because as long as your project includes stamping..."Anything Goes."  Projects can be a card, layout, journal page, art panel, tag, 3D item, anything at all, as long as it follows all guidelines and of course includes actual stamping.

My project is a vintage style friendship card. I created the background with layers of overlapping masking tape which adds a beautiful subtle wrinkly texture. The paints accentuate all the crevices and is a very effective way to create an aged look so it is very versatile for any vintage & distressed project.

Supplies:
1. Birds Clocks Rubber Stamp Set (Sin City Stamps)
2. Flower Bird Sketches Stamp Set (Sin City Stamps)
3. Inhale Exhale Art Stamp Set (Sin City Stamps)
4. white cardstock
5. black ink pad
6. masking tape
7. sponge applicator
8. paint - yellow
9. white crackle paint
10. gold mist
11. liquid adhesive
12. gold micro beads

Embossed Rinea Paper Foil Card Backgrounds

I just love embossed papers and I use them all the time in my crafting. The subtle textures add wonderful layers. I couldn't wait to try Rinea Paper Foil because I knew it would be just beautiful when embossed. Once I started embossing, I couldn't stop and now I have a nice selection of embossed foils ready to go. Make sure you look for my post later this month when I share a scrapbook layout featuring elegant gold embossed foil.  Here are the girlie cards I made with Rinea's Blush Foil.


Once I started embossing, I couldn't stop and now I have a nice selection of embossed foils ready to go.  Make sure you look for my post next week when I share a scrapbook layout featuring elegant gold embossed foil.

Card 1: Fabulous Flourish & Fairy Birthday Card



Directions:
1. Place a piece of foil into the embossing folder and send it through the die cutter.
2. Embellish the background with mini gems. Use a permanent white marker to highlight parts of the pattern. Stamp a border onto transparency and attach it over the embossed foil.
3. Attach the embossed foil to the card base and cut off any excess overhanging foil.
4. Stamp a central focus image. Color, fussy cut, and mount with foam tape.  Add a sentiment.

TIP: Apply glitter glue in the recessed areas to add contrast within the embossed pattern.
